West of England Travel

  • A weekend in Cornwall

    Castles dominate the coastline, isolated settlements and sites steeped in myth and legend are just a small part of what Cornwall has to offer. Plan a long weekend of history in this incredible part of south west England.

  • Walking The Great Stones Way

    Running through the Wiltshire countryside from near Swindon to Stonehenge, the Great Stones Way is one of England’s newer hiking trails. Travel writer Sarah Baxter set off in the footsteps of our ancestors.

  • Spotlight On Farleigh Hungerford

    This picturesque ruined castle in Wiltshire may be peaceful today, but behind its tranquillity lies a tumultuous past. Over the course of its 700 year history the castle has witnessed immense wealth, scandal, murder, imprisonment, debt and, finally, ruin.

  • Days Out Without a Car

    Planning a day trip this summer doesn’t have to mean getting in the car. Many of our historic places can be visited by public transport, by bike, on foot - or a mixture.
